Oasi Presents: Post-Cortona Premieres Concert

6 Premieres. 5 Composers. 3 Performers. You've been hearing about this project all year and now it's finally here! We're kicking off our 2019-2020 season with the premieres concert (and first concert of Oasi's fall tour) for our Post-Cortona Premieres project.

Kathryn Vetter (clarinet), Claire Niederberger (violin), and Magnus Villanueva (piano) as the Oasi Trio present six world premieres by composers Will Healy, Paul Hwang, Clark Hubbard, Chelsea Komschiles, and Diana Marcela Rodriguez. All composers and performers are alumni of the Cortona Sessions for New Music in Cortona, Italy. The commissioned pieces vary in instrumentation with two trios, one trio with electronics, a solo violin piece, a solo clarinet piece, and a duo for clarinet and piano. These premieres showcase diverse styles including electroacoustic elements, music paired with an olfactory experience, and genre-mixing art-pop. Come join us for an evening of varied instrumentations and musical styles!
